    This research is a pioneering attempt to see what the problems of our life today will turn into for mankind. Possibly very soon. If we continue to treat them the way we have so far, and if our understanding of the processes of social existence that are underway right before our eyes, and with them, our participation is not modified by wary thought about their possible consequences. The author writes about the growth of Science and Technology from the ancient to the modern period. He also critically analysis the role of science, technology and religion. He also defines the social responsibilities of Scientists and also the ethics attached with it. The author emphasises the need for intellectual or moral development. He gives a rational explanation for the need to believe in God, being a universal thought for mankind. Finally, the author critically analyses the imperfection in science and pleads for a holistic approach towards the use of science and technology for the future of our civilization.

    Developing countries greatly suffer from the absence of a meaningful science and technology policy for stimulating the process of economic development by appropriate use of the S&T resources. They also lack appropriate human resources with adequate expertise in S&T policy formulation and implementation. In order to correct these imbalances, it is necessary to have consultations between the governments, institutions and industry by taking into account the specific technological needs and resources of each individual country. The decision makers in developing countries should be provided more and better information for the formulation and implementation of S&T polices which would include the data on S&T statistics, human resources devoted to R&D, education of R&D personnel, measurement of technological innovation and S&T outputs like publications, patents, technologies developed and commercialised etc., so that new policies may be formulated and required modifications in the policies if already existing may be made in order to ensure the sustainable growth of the country without compromising on its present resources and keeping it prepared to face the future challenges. This publication reflects an exchange of the views and collectively evolves the ideas and practices to be followed while executing the S&T policy programmes within the developing countries, concerned organisations and agencies through a collection of 19 research papers including country status reports from nine countries. This volume is chiefly based on the discussions and presentations during the International Workshop on Science and Technology Policy for Sustainable Development that was organised in Tehran, Iran during 5-7 January, 2011 jointly by the NAM S&T Centre and the National Research Institute for Science Policy (NRISP), Ministry of Science, Research and Technology of Iran. The information presented herein would hopefully serve as a valuable material not only for the scientists, policy makers and executives, but also for the concerned authorities of the developing countries in taking appropriate policy measures.

    Vedas are considered as an ocean of knowledge. Every bit of Vedas is very important each stanza, each line, each word has a significant meaning to it. For the language also supports its purpose. It is said that Sanskrit is the only nearest language which could be used to explain or describe anything clearly and specifically. It is the only Vedic Dharma where religion and Science go in hand to hand. The Vedas contain in them the gems of all true sciences. The book Science in Veda deals with the combined approaches of modern science and ancient Vedic science. As we know that Indian Scriptures and Sanskrit literature is the storehouse of knowledge. As we go through this literature they have innumerable illustrations of Science, technology, arts, music, dance, environment, architecture, vehicles etc. The present book is an attempt to explore the knowledge of science, penetrate the mystery of the Vedas and to search out in them the various branches of Science. The book is divided into ten chapters describing the importance of water as described in our vedic literature.

  • Plant Tissue Culture: An Alternative For Production Of Useful Metabolites

    Item Code: #9788170351979

    Availability: In stock

    Higher plants contain a variety of metabolites that are useful as medicines, food additives, perfumes, etc. Decreased plant resources, increases in labour costs and other problems in obtaining these valuable substances from natural plants have stimulated work in the area of plant cell culture for their production. Studies have been carried out on an increasing scale since the end of the 1950s and the results have stimulated more recent studies on the industrial application of this technology. A skin pigment, shikonin and ginseng cell biomass are currently manufactured in Japan. However, the low productivity of cultured plant cells has kept production costs high; production efficiency must be improved before many other products can be commercialized. This publication reviews the background of plant cell culture research, cost analysis, methods and facilities, various approaches to improving productivity and studies on a number of commercially interesting products that are currently being investigated.
